Help with accessibility
You can read this guide from AbilityNet on how to adjust your computer and browser according to your needs, such as for sight or hearing problems.
It covers how to make the text larger in different browsers, change your keyboard or mouse settings, or increase colour contrast.
AbilityNet is a national charity that helps disabled adults and children to use computers and the internet.
The GPDirect website is compatible with most standard assistive software, including the screen readers NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) and JAWS.
We do not recommend viewing the GPDirect website using Safari’s Reader View. Not all the text on our pages is shown when Reader View is activated. Apple, which makes Safari Reader View, has been made aware of this issue.
Find out how to enlarge text for clarity without activating Reader View.
Printing webpages in your browser
If text appears too small when you print a page, you can adjust the settings to a size that suits you.
Here’s how it’s done in the most common web browsers:
If using Internet Explorer, go to Print Preview in the File menu and alter the page Scale.
Chrome doesn’t give sizing options within the print options, so use your computer’s Print Preferences.
Before going to print, increase the webpage font by using Ctrl++ or by going to Menu, View, and Zoom in. The printed page will be printed at the new font size.
If using Mozilla Firefox, go to Print Preview in the File menu and alter the page scale to the preferred font size.
Before going to print, increase the webpage font by using Ctrl++ or by going to Menu, Page, and Zoom. The printed page will be printed at the new font size.
